The B.A. program provides the intellectual discipline of biophysics and biochemistry for students who wish to have sufficient time for in-depth studies outside the major or who are interested in molecular biology as part of a liberal education and may not wish to go on to graduate work in any of the natural sciences. B.A. program majors have an opportunity to carry out research in faculty laboratories after they have completed their required MB&B laboratory course.
In the absence of Advanced Placement (AP) in any of the natural sciences or mathematics, completion of at least 9.5 of science courses are required for the B.A. Major.
